Description

TEMPORARILY REDUCED. WAS $135. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first edition, fist printing (slight gap between the spine head and the closed page block, tiny bit of shelf soil to the closed page block bottom's leading due to the heavy page block having settled a bit), in a Fine dust jacket with a fine transparent overjacket hosting the author, title, and publisher information. The book was published in 1997, approximately 22 years after Pynchon first began working on it, and provides a fictionalized account of the lives and careers of the English astronomer Charles Mason and his partner, surveyor Jeremiah Dixon, who together surveyed of the Mason-Dixon line, during the birth of the American Republic. Noted Critic Harold Bloom declared the book to be Pynchon's "masterpiece to date" -- and this work having followed Pynchon's "V", "The Crying of Lot 49", and "Gravity's Rainbow". Bloom also opined: "Pynchon always has been wildly inventive, and gorgeously funny when he surpasses himself: the marvels of this book are extravagant and unexpected." T. Coraghessan Boyle stated: "This is the old Pynchon, the true Pynchon, the best Pynchon of all. Mason & Dixon is a groundbreaking book, a book of heart and fire and genius, and there is nothing quite like it in our literature...." A Fine, Superior copy of this exceedingly well-received work, and not at all common in condition as nice as is this copy. A Fine, Superior, copy.
